    Amazon is considering expanding its cashier-less, checkout-free Amazon Go stores to airports, according to a new report from Reuters this week. The first Amazon Go store opened to the public in January 2018, and since then, six more stores have opened in Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco. We actually had the chance to shop in one of the Chicago locations in the fall, in case you want to know what it’s like to be inside an Amazon Go.

    Reuters discovered the company’s plans to move into airports via public records requests to multiple airports, which turned up emails in which Amazon discussed the possibility of adding its futuristic stores to the lineup of shops and restaurants on the concourse. It doesn’t appear that the process is very far along yet though.
